As I said recently Richard A Jennings was the Archivist for the Methodist Church and its thanks to him that a lot of knowledge, photos etc will have been saved.
I have one of his interesting booklets on Felling & District called 'A Cornocopia of news stories through the years'.
In his booklet his story for today 2nd Aug 1740 is.
The Manor or Lordship of Wardley was today offered for Sale including a Farm,all the water corn mills known as Heworth Mills, and one 5th part of a farm at Nether Heworth.
Tomorrows news in his booklet is from the 3rd Aug 1916.
The funeral took place today of John Thompson (71) who was previously a member of the Heworth Local Board. A member of the United Methodist Church, he attended the Crow Hall Lane Chapel.
